Check the brake fluid reservoir to make sure it's full.
See if the sensor float switch in it is moving freely up and down.
Make sure the brake line doesn't have air in it and needs bleeding.

2007 kia Sedona abs light keeps coming on front sensors been changed .brakes feel better when light is on


Then the new parts did not cure the fault. Do another fault code test and see what shows up, if the same fault codes pop up then you may have a wiring issue or the control module is defective (very unlikely)

Replace rear brake discs and pads


Depending on vehicle. Find level ground and park there. Put chocks in front and behind wheels not being lifted. Loosen lugs, jack up vehicle, set jack stands, lower vehicle on jack stands, remove lugs and wheel. Open hood remove brake fluid cap. Remove two bolts holding caliper, pull caliper off rotor disc and bracket, remove pads, place a used pad in front of caliper piston, use a c clamp to push caliper piston in caliper, remove c clamp and old pad, hang caliper up, remove 2 bolts holding caliper bracket, remove bracket, remove rotor, install new rotor, install caliper bracket, install new pads, install caliper, repeat this on other side, put cap back on brake fluid tank, remove bleeder fittings and keep pressing brake pedal until an even flow of brake fluid sprays out. Install bleeder fitting. Make sure brake fluid doesnt get on paint and is contained and disposed of correctly, top off fluid install wheels and raise car up remove jack stands, lower car and break in new pads

Hi ,i have a vw scirocco 1987 8valves,all the brakes are new,even the lines ,master cylinder,galepper,pads,rotors,drums.when the car is hot the pads stick on the front disk,everithing is new?what is the...


Hi
Well, I really think you may find the problem only between two things: Caliper, pads or brake shoes, Beacuse I guess If you bought new drums you bought new shoes too didn't you? But if you're sure it is in front disk, then, you just have to check, you got the right caliper and pads and check the caliper is well adjusted and installed I hope this helps good luck!

The brake light has come on, what does that mean?


it means there is either a problem with the brakes or there may soon be a problem with them.

First check fluid levels - second - have someone look at the pads - front and rear - if u have a regular mechanic he will look and advise for free - what year? How long since brakes have been looked at ? Installed?

You can remove the wheel and tire -- see what it looks like if you know what you're looking for - otherwise I will venture an educated guess that you need new brake pads - front and do a visual inspection of the rears.

If you live near a parts place - let them run the code - for engine light on - - this is going to give u a hint even if it says nothing.

Rear antilock brake lite keeps coming on even after new rear pads and new rotation sencer


Change the sensor that is on top of the rear differential...You probaly can take it out and clean it and disconnect the battery, and test drive, and it might go off

Front Passenger brakes rubbing


Dis brakes have residual pressure thar keeps the pads in constant contact with the roter.It is very light contact, so not to worry. If left is not in contact with rotor then chk it for loose wheel bearings.

Do i need special tool to change the front break pad?


I'm going to assume you are talking about the front brakes since the brake pad warning light is wired to the front drivers side brake pad. Is this is the case you shouldn't put off changing the brake pads and rotors too long after the warning light comes on because you don't want to damage the caliper and cost yourself more money. Do them atleast within the next 500 miles if not earlier. The front brakes on the Jetta are standard single piston disc brakes. Buy decent new brake pads and you might as well buy new rotors instead of getting the old ones turned down (resurfaced, makes them thinner). You should also buy new brake fluid (good stuff) and flush the lines since VW recommends changing it every two years and it keeps the brake system clean and free of corrosion (saves money in the long term). Then you just jack up the vehicle, pop off the tire, loosen the caliper bolts, pull off the caliper making sure to still support it so the brake line doesn't get damaged (rig something up to hang it off the spring on the strut, i.e. bent metal clothes hanger), remove the one screw that holds on the rotor, pull off the old rotor, and remove old pads. There will be a pad sensor wire on the left front that you need to take off too. At this point you might need to push in the caliper piston in order to get the new pads seated correctly. There is no trick on the front calipers like the rear ones (the rear ones need you to turn the piston while pushing it in and is easiest to do with a special tool). You can use and old c-clamp or borrow a caliper tool fron a local auto parts store for the front. You should mount the new rotor first, then you might want to open the brake fluid reservoir (in the engine bay at the back, i.e. closest to cabin, in front of the driver), push the caliper piston back in, mount the new pads by usually sliding them on (use some brake quiet on the back if they don't have anything on them already), and put the caliper back on. The new pads might have the attachment for the sensor. You need to find out all the tightening values for all the bolts you remove and the best way for this is to buy the Bentley factory repair manual for your car (about $80). This will have the procedure I just outlined. It will also tell you how to change the brake fluid. The website forums.tdiclub.com will also have lots of answers for you and probably has pictures on how to do the work. I also recommend worldimpex.com or germanautoparts.com to buy whatever parts you need.

One thing I should mention, the rear brakes in these cars wear out long before the front brakes. If you have never had those serviced you should really look at them too. They may be down to metal on metal if the fronts are worn out.
